Throughout the Harry Potter books, there are some variations between the Bloomsbury (British) and Scholastic (American) editions. Below the first section on "Philosopher's vs. Sorcerer's" is a section on other different terminologies used.

Philosopher's vs. Sorcerer's

When Scholastic was publishing Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone in America, they decided to rename the book Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone. They claimed that the American and British uses of the word philosopher were a bit different, so therefore sorcerer was a zaidi appropriate word. Any true Harry Potter fan, American...

Headmaster Albus Dumbledore: His first name is from the Latin word alba, "white." His last name, according to Rowling interviews, is Old English for "bumblebee." In colour symbolism, white often stands for purity, so the headmaster's name suggests honour and a hard-working nature ("busy as a bee").
Professor Binns: A bin is a large storage container. A dustbin is British English for a garbage can. This boring professor could be described as a ghostly storage for information that many Hogwarts students view as rubbish.
Headmaster Armando Dippet: Armando is from the name Armand,...

1. Ask him why he 'doesn't have such a cool scar?'
2. Laugh at him.
3. Wake him up kwa imba beach, pwani Boys songs in his ear. 'Round, round, get around, I get around...'
4. Knit him things. Really hideous things.
5. Give him kangaroo-ears for a month.
6. Smile during Death-Eater meetings and say wewe taught him everything he knows.

A handy-dandy Wikihow makala on how to make a horcrux, for all wewe aspiring Dark witches and wizards out there!
Credit: wikihow.com


1. Become an extremely powerful witch au wizard. This will take years of study and sacrifice which lie beyond the scope of a WikiHow article. As a general guide wewe should not attempt to create a horcrux until wewe can cast non-verbal killing curses.

2. Locate an object of extreme significance to you. An emotional attachment to the object will aid the process and make it easier on your body and soul.

3. Bathe in the Water of Sorrows and eat 1 cup of paste made from...

At my uni we've been studying the way gender and sexism shapes the education curriculum.

This was an makala we were actually aliyopewa to read and debate about in a seminar:

"Harry Potter's girl trouble
The world of everyone's inayopendelewa kid wizard is a place where boys come first.
By Christine Schoefer

*

Four factors made me go out and buy the Harry Potter books: Their impressive lead on the bestseller lists, parents' raves about Harry Potter's magical ability to turn kids into passionate readers, my daughters' clamoring and the mile-long waiting lists at the public library. Once I opened "The Sorcerer's...

I'm basing this review mostly on J.K. Rowling's official words and a little on the books's content. I write this regarding how the swali of the educating style is often pondered and some even think "all pure-bloods were nyumbani schooled".

The purity of one's blood is not relevant to how a child is schooled before Hogwarts. With the exception of families like Malfoys au Blacks who would probably die before sending their kids amongst muggles to learn anything. But whatever few pure-blood families there were left - as far as I see - most of them are not known to be like those two, but have a respectable...

If wewe are like the millions of other Harry Potter mashabiki out there, wewe have been keeping up with every little bit of Half Blood Prince film information that has leaked out so far. After reviewing the five trailers (including the Japan one) and first look that have come out (not including ABC's five, one dakika long previews), mashabiki now have a general idea of what will be in the film from the book, and what is changed/won't be in the film. Thus what follows is what I have gathered to be the scenes included in the film from the books, and what we will see having been changed from book to film...

Witch Weekly in 1995. The piece, written kwa Rita Skeeter, claimed that Hermione Granger was Harry Potter's girlfriend and that she was toying him around kwa seeking the affections of Viktor Krum, who himself was very much smitten with her. As with much of Skeeter's writing, though the essence of the makala was false, there was smidgen of truth that lent the makala an air of believability to those who did not know better. While Harry was not Hermione's boyfriend, the two had in fact been close Marafiki since early in their first mwaka at Hogwarts. Additionally, Hermione had danced with Krum at...

On the night that Sirius died, after the battle at the Ministry of Magic at the end of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, Dumbledore showed Harry, with the aid of his pensieve, the complete Lost Prophecy:

"The one with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord approaches... Born to those who have thrice defied him, born as the seventh mwezi dies... and the Dark Lord will mark him as his equal, but he will have power the Dark Lord knows not... and either must die at the hand of the other for neither can live while the other survives... the one with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord will...

Lucy ran into a compartment and leaned against the door, panting. The two boys looked at her, their brows furrowed.

“Oh,” she alisema when she saw them. “Sorry. I told off some boys and they got mad and started chasing me,” she rubbed her arm where one of the kids had punched her.

“It’s okay,” a boy with tapped up glasses said. Lucy sat inayofuata to the other boy.

“I’m Lucy, kwa the way,” she said.

“I’m Harry.”

“Ron.”

“Cool rat,” Lucy alisema to Ron. He smiled.

“His name Scabbers. Wanna see a spell to make him turn yellow?” he asked.

“Sure,” Lucy shrugged. He pulled out...

Whenever my teacher used to say that we've to write an essay on our inayopendelewa hobby, i used to get furious coz i never knew what my fav hobby was? I was not content with this and i always got low marks in uandishi this essay. What's the thing that i always loved to do, i always thought about that.Until Harry Potter came into my life at the age of 13. i read about it siku n night. I always talked about it and was very proud of my hobby. Whenever a new student came to our classroom i never forgot to ask him/her if he/she read harry potter au was a potter head.

These vitabu really freshens up my mind....

wewe know very well that wewe will never have read to much of Harry Potter!!! ::sniffs::
You say things to people like "Wingardium Leviosa!" and "Expelliarmus!" to trolls and incompetent professors.
You've read all the Harry Potter vitabu out so far ten au zaidi times!!! (I have!!!)
You follow any kids around with any of the character's names, prodding them to do magic.
You often call a teacher wewe don't like "Snape."
You're always getting weird looks from people when wewe ask if they have possibly seen your toad.
Your parents think you're nuts; this is because wewe often ride around your nyumbani on a broom...

1. Some zaidi minor characters, such as Dobby, were only included in the films where their roles were pivotal. Others such as Peeves were excluded entirely. The development of minor relationships such as Tonks/Lupin and Bill/Fleur was cut.

2. The locations for Harry/Ginny and Ron/Hermione's first kisses were both altered in the films. Some smaller scenes between the couples were also changed au added in. Scenes such as Harry and Hermione dancing in Deathly Hallows were added to please their mashabiki and to create zaidi of an impression of a upendo triangle.

Dolores Umbridge: the horrible woman who is the most cruel and hated character in the Harry Potter series. Here are 100 reasons as to why I hate Dolores Umbridge.


1) She believes in extremely harsh, severe, and cruel punishments.

2)Too much pink.

3) She's just doesn't make sense. Like, how she tells everyone to raise their hands if they want to speak, but then she ignores them.

4) She's racist. Well, she's technically "half-breed-ist", because she thinks wizards and witches are better than centaurs, werewolves, goblins, elves, etc. I hate that, because without the help of a lot of half breeds,...
